What we believe

 

The destiny of a startup is determined in its early days & we believe that there are some guiding principles that will maximize the likelihood & magnitude of success.

Entrepreneurs are the heart of a startup
A startup cannot be run by a manager. A startup needs someone that embodies the vision of the company. A startup needs passion. A startup needs energy & enthusiasm to solve a problem. A startup needs someone willing to take on risk for future rewards through significant equity ownership. These are all key components in handling the ups & downs of a startup.

 

 

Avoid basic & common mistakes

Lot’s of people have made mistakes before & there is no need to repeat them. Basic mistakes around building a sustainable culture & company can kill the success of any product – no matter how innovative. Get insight, guidance & advice from people who have done it before & avoid deadly pitfalls.

 

 

Benefit from an ecosystem that profits all parties
Being part of a group of similarly ambitious people creates a synergetic environment. Knowledge, best-practice & idea sharing. Broadened network of connections. Continuous feedback & motivation. Improved execution. 

Laser focus on product development is vital

Undistracted focus & attention on product/market fit is key to success in the early days. However, entrepreneurs face a range of distractions. Access to capital creates significant worries. Company formation & administration tasks are time consuming & provide little value-add. It is critical to find the right balance to these challenges & focus on what matters – the product.

 

 

Leverage support where it makes sense

Don’t try to master everything from day one. Leverage insight & execution from functional experts to accelerate learning, product/market fit & growth, while building the right internal capabilities. Outsource admin functions to save early capital investments & keep focus on product.
